A Girl Shoud Be Two Things. Classy & Fabulous.

Animal Instinct

I'm not usually one for trotting down to a sale, I'm not the best person to deal with crowds and mess and riffling through racks looking for something, you probably wouldn't have wanted anyway but the price gives you a slight justification. However when on the RiverIsland website last week, without trying I spotted a gorgeous pair of boots I just couldn't say no to.

I have been looking for a decent pair of animal print boots and had my eye on this pair in the past when they were priced at £70. It was between this pair and a pair at Topshop marked at the same price range. But when stumbling across these boots marked down to £30, I knew someone was smiling down on me and quickly placed an order in my size. I've developed a slight love for animal print all of a sudden, which for me is pretty strange considering a year ago you wouldn't have seen me come close to wearing anything leopard-esq.

I'm very bad in flats, my feet haven't got much of an arch and are slightly penguin-y so I really do opt for heeled boots over flats. I love the thicker heel on these boots as it makes them extra supportive and comfortable for all day wear. I'm now on the look out for some gorgeous high helled Chelsea boots!! The saga continues...

How do you guys feel about animal print this season are you loving or loathing? And on everyday shoes are you more of a flats or a heels girl?

In The Still Of The Night

Heya dolls, lately I've realised that n comparison to other Beauty Bloggers my eyeshadow collection is a little whimpy. Im not a massive shadow junkie, I dont lack as much self control when purchasing shadows as with say my lipsticks. But with my recent introduction to NARS eyeshadows I've become a little lovestruck. My purchase of the shadow Galapogos, which I have to say is the best eyeshadow I've ever worked with, has made me want more, MORE!

After browsing on the NARS website I came across their Limted Edition Night Series Palette. Do I even need to waste words advocating for this.

The colours are beyond gorgeous, the perfect shades for a winter night out.

(from left to right) Night Star, Night Clubbing, Night Porter, Night Rider, Night Flight, Night Breed

The shades are rich, highly pigmented, easily blended and fabulous! My favourites so far are Night Star (gorgeous peachy colour with shimmer) & Night Breed ( black packed with silver glitter)

If your into a little lid luxury then defo take a look online or in-store.

What do you guys think of the palette? What are your shadow collections like? Do you ever find yourself collecting more variations of one type of make up item than the other?

Love & hugs

Clarins Beauty Flash Balm: Review

Hello guys! I thought that now that I'm reaching the end with one of my most reached for products, now would be a good a time as any to review it for you. I picked up the Clarins Beauty Flash Balm back in May, after reading reviews and the description online in my mind it seemed like a pretty decent buy for the summer time. Its described online as "An instant radiance booster" which obviously gave me the idea to use this for a nice summer glow; "Skin feels softer the complexion appears brighter and more radiant. Enhances make-up's luminous appearance and lasting wear." My idea was to have this glow through a light application of foundation and keep my face glistening (the right way) in the sunshine.

Did it work?
Sort of, is the best answer I can come up with in relation to this question. The product gave me an instant glow all round, that neither made me appear sweaty or greasy. Before I became dedicated to my MUFE primer I used this moisturiser as a base for my foundation, to test the theory of enhancing make up's appearance and wear. When applying my foundation ontop of this I definitely saw that glow penetrating through, but because I mostly use my Pro Longwear foundation I probably couldn't give you a 100% accurate explanation as to whether it helfdmy foundation in there for longer. Nothing is going to work to increase the wear of your foundation more so than an actual primer. But on the basis of that healthy glow, I definitely saw it shine through my base for atleast the first couple hours or so.

The other benefits are its sweet cinammon like scent, that some may like or dislike, but I personally enjoyed, and also its lightweight but effective texture. As someone with combination skin I found it works nicely to moisturise but not in anyway increase the production of oil in areas like my t-zone, it did nothing to prevent it persay, but then again nothing to encourage it. If you find you do enjoy this as a moisturser, but suffer from oily areas, maybe finding a light mattifying serum to use underneath or mattifyng primer to use on top may solve the problem for oilier skin. Another bonus would be for those who think its about time to try anti-aging products as its described to "Work instantly to promote firmer looking features and reduce the appearance of fine lines." Saying that, I think because of its light weight and sublte texture, younger skins could enjoy using this with a tinted moisturiser for a natural glow. And apparently you can use this as a mask once a week or so by applying it all over the face for 10-15 mins, I personally never did this so I couldnt tell you if there are any benefits to this, all I can say is the tube seems to small for me to waste loads on masking *shrugs*.
All in all I did enjoy my time using this moisturiser and am a little sad its almost gone, I would definitely repurchase again in the future, as it is a nice one to have around. 

Have any of you guys tried the Beauty Flash Balm? If so what did you think, would you repurchase? Or are any of you interested in trying it in the future?

Wishin you a lovely day
